Lens Rehousing Leica-R

Cine Rehousing for Leica-R lenses

The ''Leica'' brand is closely linked to the beginning of film making as well as being beloved in the photo industry and artist community . The 24x36 Leitz/Leica format was developed from the silent movie format. Digital cinematography broke the limits of this format. The mix of different sensor sizes can be a stylistic element. The “Full Frame” format 24x36 as sensor size is available and affordable.

Leica, Ernst Leitz, Leitz Wetzlar, Leitz Canada – all the same ?

The company Leitz was founded in 1869 by Ernst Leitz in Wetzlar. In the 1970s the company name was changed to Ernst Leitz Wetzlar and in 1989 to Wild Leitz. In 1990 WILD LEITZ and Cambridge Instruments merged into LEICA group. [Source Wikipedia]
The R lenses were produced under the different names and manufactured at different locations and some have little differences in design. So far we haven’t seen all the different versions that might have been produced. But from those versions we have received for rehousing, we were able to implement them into our housing.
